One of the best places to stay in Reno great prices and free play just for booking online. Food is good and now they even have a Gilleys. The sport's book has moved upstairs so access is a lot easier.

Stayed here two nights during a tour and can't complain about the room. Room was big and clean with comfortable rooms and spacious bathrooms. Only issue is the lay out, it seemed like I had to walk a quarter mile to the elevator on my floor and another quarter mile to get through the lobby to be near anything. Now... More

Seriously! What happened to this lovely hotel?!!!! At check in 8/15/14, dogs everywhere!! That's fine if you know ahead time and can make an informed decision. First night there, the room was burning up (no air conditioning) and toilet wouldn't flush!! We called the front desk several times. Finally got the toilet fixed, and we had to sleep in what... More

I made a reservation for my grand daughter and I, returning from a white water trip in Idaho. When making the reservation, I upgraded to a "premium" non-smoking room. Upon checking in, I was informed that the non-smoking rooms were taken and one was not available. The clerk at the registration desk informed me that non-smoking rooms were not guaranteed... More

We wanted to spend the weekend in Reno to celebrate my birthday and go to a gun show at the "Grand". We wanted an inexpensive room, but not a cheap hotel either. After searching on Tripadviser, we decided to stay at the Nugget. Now, we lived in Reno years ago, so we really didn't think that the Nugget was a... More

Stayed there 8/15/14. My room was very warm. I called for someone to come look at thermostat. Waited in my room two hours and nobody showed up. I could not wait to get out of there the next morning. I think this hotel's systems are very old and can't keep up. Even the casino area was not as cool as... More

With Indian Casinos everywhere, Nevada has taken a hit. Fewer people are taking the drive across the mountains into Reno and Las Vegas. . You cant re-create the fun you can have in Nevada at an Indian Casino in California. Its a pity, Reno is a great place but many of the hotels have closed. Those remain open have lowered... More
